Meghan Markle’s father Thomas is “alert and coherent” after having surgery on his heart, according to reports in the US.

Los Angeles-based celebrity website TMZ says the future royal’s dad has spoken to them by telephone following his operation.

In the conversation, he is reported to have said doctors had implanted three stents in his blood vessels.

He is apparently still in hospital and it is not known when he will be released.

Earlier in the week, Mr Markle, who lives in Mexico, confirmed he would not walk his daughter down the aisle due to his health preventing him from travelling.

He had also reportedly said that he did not want to “embarrass the Royal Family or his daughter”, words relating to claims that he staged paparazzi photographs of himself getting measured for a suit for the wedding and browsing news websites for stories about his daughter.

Mr Markle, 73, is believed to have started having chest pains on Monday and checked himself into hospital on Tuesday where he had a series of tests.

“They [doctors] will go in and clear blockage, repair damage and put a stent where it is needed,” he told TMZ soon afterwards.

His absence most likely means that his ex-wife, Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland, will walk their daughter down the aisle at St George’s chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle on Saturday.

Ms Ragland, 61, arrived at Heathrow on Wednesday.
